Bloglines Subscribe: "“A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.” Tim Cahill"

awarded? well o.k.

The rules were simple : just give 7 fun facts about yourself and nominate 7 other bloggers for the award and MEME, and this was given by my friend Kate @ letkatedrive

So here goes nothing....

1. I know how to sew pretty well, and when I was a very poor newly wed ( the first time) I would go to Walmart by discounted fabric (* dollar a yard) and Sew my own clothes.

2. am am addicted to " junk t.v." and spend time watching HGTV, TLC and MTV yup all have series with addictive qualities for me.

3. I hate to File ( my pile is huge and it drives me crazy) and I file into boxes - with not alot of rhyme or reason.

4. I am a scrapbooker at heart but also have a fondness for card making and altered art. Sometimes i get creative lulls and I haven't scrapped seriously in a while now.

5. I skipped the 7th grade and missed some basics of science - biology in particular. My friends in high school would introduce me as -- this is Tammy she skipped a grade-- yup little smarty pants.

6. as an adult I went through adult leader training in Boy Scouts and received my " wood badge" I am very proud to say I am an antelope and learned so much about myself during this training. I have the best patrol mates and lifelong friends I have made through scouting.

7. I didn't watch T.V. for almost 5 years while we lived in Europe - I missed Happy Days in it's entirety and only know about it from watching re-runs.

Praise the lord,ask for help but keep rowing

S. IS FREAKING amazing. he fixed the mom van and it is up and running.

We went to church this morning but SSD2 heaved about 20 minutes into the service, not sure what happened, he gave a big burp then looked at me said " trashcan" and chucked up all the breakfast we had less than an hour prior!! all over the floor and carpet, tile and all the way to a restroom. - it sucked and we were a bit emarrased.

not sure if it was a little bug ( tummy upset) or something worse we will have to keep an eye on him.

Fashion Home - Splashes of sunshine for spring 2010

Fashion Home - Splashes of sunshine for spring 2010

Posted using ShareThis

Love that what is old is new again. the Turquoise is especially lovely and my personal favorite the Violet.

Check out what is hot in color

rain, pours, whoas and stuff

the Mom van is back in the driveway tonight. It will not be traveling for a day or two. I hope we can get it running soon.
it is getting older and we baby it along, S is amazing and works his magic on it, keeps it going - it is really something else.
he broke his cell phone - the screen is cracked, it dropped to the ground while he was inspecting the Mom-van - so now it is pouring a bit on our troubles.
his car is not running well either and for whatever reason we can't figure out what would help it. He has tried all kinds of things to trouble shoot it with not much success.
We have lots of outgo and not much inflow at the moment. it is a stressor for me and him.

Have faith and a bit of happiness ( we will ride this out together)
